American rapper Coolio has passed away on Wednesday afternoon after he was found unresponsive inside the bathroom of his friend he had visited.
Confirming the news was TMZ who spoke to his long-time manager Jarez who said that the friend kept calling him and when he entered, he found the rapper lying on the floor.
Paramedics were immediately called at the house and confirmed that Coolio was indeed dead. Police have already opened investigations into his death but the coroner will reveal the cause of his death once an autopsy is conducted.
Other than an autopsy, a toxicology will also be conducted but law enforcements did not get any drugs at the scene. They now suspect he must have suffered a cardiac arrest.
Coolio whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr joined the rap game back in the 80’s but made headlines in 1995 when his hit song ‘gangster paradise’ took the world by storm.
